This article explores the use of storytelling as part of an overall approach to the teaching of information technology in tertiary education. The author defines the context of use of storytelling in terms of the various types of education being delivered and the delivery methods, and then explores the potential uses and benefits of storytelling. A sample story is included and briefly analysed to illustrate how a story might be used; the author also reports on his own experiences of the use of storytelling in his teaching activities. Finally, a detailed checklist is presented of the issues to be considered when using the storytelling approach.
